So I was excited to get my fenders sprayed with the rubberized liner spray today, so I went over to the parents house to pick up some latex gloves to protect my hands from the spray.
Well the wrangler had other plans and I spent just about 6 hours there instead of a five minute pick up and go...
I've only had this jeep since Tuesday and have been driving it back and forth to work (driving it is a joy, i absolutely love it) but anyways like i said I was on my way to my parents (about 10 mins away) I pull out of my garage into the alley, then onto the street.
I proceed to shift into 2nd gear, but the shifter kept popping out. So I pull to the side of the road and turn the hazards on. I go through my gears and I can not get 2nd or 4th.
I originally thought possible transmission problem so I continue to drive to parents house skipping 2nd and keeping it in 3rd.
I end up getting there alright but I looked under the jeep and bam the transmission is just hanging there with one side of the skid plate still attached to the frame.
We ended up getting some angled steel, cutting it, drilling holes and all that good stuff. Six hours later the skid plate is holding the transmission up again! Now its just a matter of time before the other side falls down
Has anybody experienced that amount of severe rust on the frame, or had the skid plate drop out?
OH I did get the passenger side fenders painted today, so far looks good for my first time doing it, cheap fun and easy way to customize the wrangler!!
